Abstract

There are many computer programs assisting in the landscape designing process of sites and projects that fall under the list of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. These programs aid designers in developing the urban design of sites particularly without affecting the other aspects of the design. In this paper, there is a comparative rating of the most commonly used computer programs to assist in this area, which is conducted through a set of scientific criteria for classification and rating. This will help landscape stakeholders to select the appropriate program depending on the nature and size of the project. The problem tackled in this research is the lack of knowledge and reluctance of some landscape designers to use CAD programs to assist in this field. This paper aims to introduce landscape designing CAD programs to assist in the site designing process and to help those interested in this field to select the appropriate program according to the nature of their projects. Keywords: landscape design, computer aided design programs, CAD.
